Bio

Newcastle's Safe Hands have been steadily carving a niche for themselves since late 2006. Originally playing a noise-laden form of post-hardcore on their debut album "Montenegro" (Pee Records 2013), after several lineup changes the band have boldly stepped away from that sound with their new album "Tie Your Soul To Mine" (Lost Boy Records 2016). TYSTM finds Safe Hands branching out with a greater focus on melody and dynamics and was among the albums long-listed for the 2016 Australian Music Prize. Over its 10-year lifespan the band has shared the stage with international artists as diverse as Converge, Norma Jean, Rolo Tomassi, La Dispute, The Hotelier and Pup.
